How Our Caregivers at Comfort Keepers of Marietta Can Help
At Comfort Keepers, we offer a wide range of in-home care services to help meet your care needs. You can start out with home care for as little as three hours one day per week, and you can always increase the hours in your care plan should your needs change.
Light Housekeeping: Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens.
Personal Care: Our caregivers provide bathing support, grooming, and hygiene assistance, including oral hygiene care, hair care, shaving, make-up application and removal, and hand and foot care. Not only can these supports help keep a senior healthy and prevent potential health problems, but they can help a senior feel great, too. Our home health aides understand the sensitive nature of personal care activities and provide all assistance with the utmost of privacy, respect, and dignity.
Meal Preparation: Many seniors do not have the ability to go grocery shopping and fix a well-balanced meal. The caregivers at Comfort Keepers can prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need.
Social Interaction: Our companion care services provide clients with social interaction, for instance, through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Incidental Transportation: Our caregivers can provide incidental transportation for older adults, allowing them the freedom to go grocery shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Allowing the seniors to go on outings is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
